19th Sunday in Ordinary Time


Home

Wisdom 18:6-9; Hebrews 11:1-2, 8-19 or 11:1-2, 8-12; Luke 12: 32-48 or 12: 35-40. Today we hear of the night when Israel began its departure from Egyptian bondage. In Hebrews, we are reminded that faith is the confident assurance concerning that for which we hope, regardless of our weaknesses. The Gospel tells us to be prepared at all times for we do not know when the Son of Man will return.

 


 

 Domenica 19A Del Tempo Ordinario

Dio consegna all’uomo un mondo ordinato e adeguato alle sue necessità. Anche nel corso degli eventi, dove gioca la libertà dell’uomo, Dio interviene come Provvidenza. Sta a noi trovare il nostro ruolo e impostare una rete di collaborazioni che tornino a vantaggio di tutti.

 

 


From the Pastor's Computer 

Usually Sunday’s first reading is very clearly connected to the Gospel; however, most of us would have a problem in relating them one to another. Let me explain how they are connected.

The first reading is taken from the Book of Wisdom in a section (11:2-19:22) that deals with a reinterpretation or remembering of the Exodus experience that is celebrated at Passover. Here the patriarchs like Abraham have foreknowledge of the “night of the Passover” which becomes a “divine institution” celebrated by the “holy children of the good.” The faith of the Patriarchs in the Promise of their own land and numerous descendents gave them courage to carry on against their adversaries. Passover is celebrated to this day in the reciting of the Passover haggadah, that is, the telling of the Passover story in a form of literature called “midrash.” Specific psalms called the Hallel Psalms (Ps. 113-118) are recited that praise (hallel) God for deliverance and continuing protection.

Instructions for the Passover are found in Exodus 12: 11ff. “This is how you are to eat it: with your loins girt, sandals on your feet and your staff in hand, you shall eat like those in flight. It is the Passover of the LORD.” This ritual is still done in the Jewish Seder with its standing and eating of bitter herbs, etc.

It is precisely here that we find the connection with today’s Gospel. Jesus says to Peter and the other disciples, “Gird your loins and light your lamps and be like servants who await their master’s return from a wedding.” Girding your loins means hitching or cinching up your pants (robes for them) so you can run and maneuver for action. The Passover meant that the Israelites had to be ready to begin the Exodus, for their passage through the Red Sea, for their journey in the desert. But for a Christian, the Passover has taken on added meaning and is connected to Eucharist and what Jesus did at the Last Supper where he girded himself and washed the feet of his disciples.

We celebrate Eucharist with two things in mind: we remember the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus and we look forward to Jesus, as the Son of Man, to come and judge the living and the dead. Blessed are those servants when the Son of Man comes at the second or third watch and finds them ready at his coming.

Bertha Bedoni “Miss Bea”: An irreplacable member of Saints Peter and Paul Church went home to the Lord last Wednesday. Bertha Bedoni, "Miss Bea," passed away suddenly at home. Bea, a Saints Peter and Paul girl through and through was 94 years old. Bee was baptized here, and has been a fixture in the parish for as long as anyone can remember. Scarcely a day went by when she was not at her church and parish, doing something for one of our organizations, or just seeing what was up. She’s was one of the volunteers who tabulate the weekly collection every Monday, one of the volunteers who worked on parish and boys’ and girls’ club mailings, and was an aide for our school’s third grade class. Bea attended Mass every day until just a couple of months ago, and she served for decades as the Lector at the daily 9:00 AM Mass.

Bea was well known throughout our entire Archdiocese. Part of her career began when she was asked to referee a game at Presentation High School. Well, she ended up being a physical education teacher there for the next 46 years! Upon the construction of the new Salesian Girls’ Club in 1952, Miss Bea was appointed by Fr. Larry Byrne as the first Girls’ club director. When our good pastor, Fr. John Itzaina visited her at home a few weeks ago, he learned that she had been awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of San Francisco. None of us had known that!

There are not enough words to tell what Bea has meant to us all. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her extended family and many, many friends.

The funeral service will be at 10:30AM on Wednesday, August 14. It will be preceded by a rosary.


Eucharistic Adoration/Holy Hour: Every Wednesday, we have Holy Hour from 7:00-8:00 PM. Adoration is followed by scripture study, at 8PM, in the rectory. Parking available.

Solemnity of the Assumption: The Assumption of our Lady, a Holy Day of Obligation, is this Thursday. There will be Masses at 7:30 & 9:AM and 12:15 and 6:00 PM. There will be also be a Vigil Mass on Wednesday at 6:00 PM.


Thursday Rosary: Our parishioner Nadine Calliguri hosts a group that gathers at her home every Thursday at 1:30 PM to pray the Rosary and the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy. Everyone is invited! For directions, call the parish office: 415-421-0809.

Support the Boys’ and Girls’ Club! Salesian Beer & Food Tasting: On August 16 from 6 to 9PM the SBGC will host a Beer and Food tasting to support the club’s Expansion and Renovation Project.

Choose Life! What are the essential elements of Christian marriage?
(1) Unity: Marriage is a covenant that by its very nature brings about bodily, intellectual, and spiritual union between a man and a woman.
(2) Indissolubility: Marriage lasts “until death do us part.”
(3) Openness to offspring: Every marriage must be open to children.
(4) Commitment to the spouse's welfare. From YOUCAT, question 416. To dig deeper:
Catechism of the Catholic Church, Section 2360-2361.

Fundraiser to help Poor Students in the Phillippines: On Sunday, August 18th there will be a benefit at San Francisco's Olympic Club to raise awareness and support for the work of Fr. Benigno Beltran in the Philippines. Father Beltran is a Divine Word Missionary and has dedicated his time and energy to working with the poorest of the poor, whom he lived amongst in the third largest untreated garbage dump near Manila for 30 years, after receiving his Doctorate in Theology from the Gregorian Institute in Rome. Over time, he was able to convince the government to close down the Smokey Mountain garbage dump and build housing for over 25,000 people. Thus the transformation from Smokey Mountain to "Silicon" Mountain took root, as a computer lab was set up, so the youth could begin to learn with a goal of high school matriculation. It is time to take the great work of his foundation the Sandiwaan Learning Center (http://www.sandiwaan.com/) to the next step as a state-of-the-art e-learning, mobile platform is being developed for the 7 million out-of-school youth. This learning system will eventually be made available to youth in other countries aspiring to become educated, and lead productive lives in society. For more information about the event, go here, and to learn more about Fr. Beltran's work, go here.

Speaking of the Rosary: mark your calendars! The Third Annual San Francisco Rosary Rally will be on Saturday, October 12. The day will begin with a 9:00 AM Hispanic Mass at the Cathedral, followed by a procession to U.N. Plaza (on Market between 7th and 8th Streets). The Rosary rally at U.N. Plaza will begin at 11:45 AM.

More Choose Life! "As Catholic Christians, one of the implications of our belief in the Incarnation is that it matters how we treat people in the here and now, and a respect for the dignity of each human being is at the core of our beliefs about abortion and other life issues. Whether the individual in question is a pre-born child, a senior at the end of life, a convicted killer, or a person with disabilities, how we treat each person reflects our own humanity. There can be no compromise with the standard Jesus set." -Most Rev. Joseph E. Kurtz, Archbishop of Louisville, “Promoting the Sanctity of Life with Courage, Compassion, and Civility,” January 27, 2013.


The “Year of Faith” Our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, declared 2012-2013 to be the year of faith. This year began on 11 October 2012, the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Second Ecumenical Vatican Council. To find resources that can help us in living our faith, visit our "Year of faith" page, and also the Vatican's English language "Year of Faith" page.

If you would like to suggest an event to help our parish during the Year of Faith, please call the parish office, or email gibbons@salesiansspp.org

Here are some Year of Faith events at St. Mary's Cathedral:

The Philosophia perennis discussion group at the Cathedral meets twice monthly, (second and fourth Friday) from 7:30PM to 10PM in the Msgr. Bowe Room. New participants welcome. For more info: reynaldo.miranda@gmail.com.

Eucharistic Holy Hour for Life, Marriage and Religious Liberty: The US Catholic Bishops are implementing a five-part strategy to address life, marriage and religious liberty concerns.

Choose Life! “Marriage needs to be strengthened, not redefined. Cohabitation, divorce, and contraception all erode marriage’s meaning as a public, total, lifelong, and fruitful communion of persons between husband and wife. The latest challenge to marriage, the proposal that sexual difference doesn’t matter, removes the very basis of marriage’s meaning as a one-flesh communion, open to children, making the definition of marriage in law (and thereby culture) open to limitless variation and ultimately meaningless.” –United States Conference of Catholic Bishops “Marriage: Unique for a Reason. One Man, One Woman, For Life.”

Pray for the Defense of Marriage and Supreme Court Justice: The USCCB's bulletin insert asking us to pray for the defense of marriage can be downloaded here.


More Choose Life: “Federal law had been generous in protecting the rights of individuals and institutions to act according to their religious beliefs and moral convictions. But political forces are now injecting themselves into the lives of Catholics and Church organizations, sub-stituting their own secular ideology for the Church’s beliefs.

Some say the Church should leave politics alone and concentrate on teaching the faith and serving the needy. But what if the State says the Church may not follow her teachings, even in her own institutions? What if the State limits the Church’s ability to serve the needy? What if it says a Catholic nurse has no right to her livelihood because she will not help perform abortions? What if the Church cannot act on her teaching that marriage is a union of one man and one woman?” -United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Bulletin Insert on Life, Marriage, and Religious Liberty.

USA Today had a very good interview with His Excellency earlier this year.

“Becoming Towers of Strength” Project & Slideshow: It has cost $2.5 million for our tower reinforcement and restoration. In order to cover the cost, the parish had to take out a loan of $1.8 million. Given the dangerous condition of the towers, we had to move immediately to take care of the problems even though we did not have sufficient funds. By the end of this week every parishioner should have received a brochure in the mail describing how you can help. Please visit

http://www.sspeterpaulsf.org/church/towers.html

to see a slideshow depicting the dangerous situation and the repairs made. You will find it eye-opening. There is also a link on that page for online donations in support of the project. “Becoming Towers of Strength” is the duty of this generation of Saints Peter and Paul parishioners, and it is really a project we can be proud of!

The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola have helped many to fulfill their desire to grow in knowledge and love of Jesus and so to follow him in greater freedom. Ignatius planned that the complete Exercises (sometimes offered as a 30-day silent retreat) also be offered as a retreat in everyday life, extended over six months or more. In following this form, the retreatant meets with an individual director weekly and prays an hour and a half daily. Doing the Exercises entails a serious commitment of both time and energy and is appropriate for those already cultivating a generous life of prayer and in regular spiritual direction. If you have an interest in doing the complete Spiritual Exercises in everyday life, our staff would be happy to help you to discern the Spirit’s call and will recommend a director when that is timely. Please contact Fr. Tom Carroll (tcarroll@jrclosaltos.org) at The Jesuit Retreat Center of Los Altos for more information.


 

Saints Peter and Paul School Scholarship Fund: Many of you will remember the time when there were many religious vocations and a Catholic education was extraordinarily inexpensive. But all that has changed. Our school charges a tuition of $7,500—less than what a public school spends to educate a child. With San Francisco’s cost of living, lack of funds may prevent children from receiving a Catholic Education. The Salesians began by educating the children of the poor, and we are not about to exclude those who cannot make the total fee. But, like Don Bosco before us, we need help. Are there parishioners and/or friends who might consider contributing to the sponsorship of a student who might be otherwise forced to leave? All recipient family qualifications will be verified by Saints Peter and Paul School. For more information,you can download a flyer here, or feel free to call Fr. Itzaina at 421-0809.


Marriage Matters to Kids! Proposition 8 forced us to confront important questions, that retain their importance even though the election is over.

What is the meaning of Marriage?
Do Children have a fundamental right to a Mother and a Father?
Do Mothers matter? Do Fathers matter?
Does natural marriage benefit society?
If so, what are the dangers of redefining marriage?
What about equality, and the dignity of the homosexual person?

Watch the video below, and listen to Catholic bishops and priests, (including a charming episode with SSPP’s own Fr. Armand Oliveri!) marriage counselors, lawyers, and people just like you, describe what marriage means and why we are called to protect it. Visit www.MarriageMattersToKids.org

Struggling with Pornography Addiction? You also are not alone! Pornographic websites are by far the largest segment of the web.

A new Catholic apostolate, the Serenellians (www.pornnomore.com), is trying to help those caught in the grips of pornography addiction. The Serenellians get their name from Alessandro Serenelli, who killed St. Maria Goretti in a fit of lust and later repented.

“If a man so seemingly wicked, decadent and corrupt as Alessandro Serenelli can receive the fullness of conversion and salvation from Almighty God, then so can each and every like soul caught up in the snares of this insidious evil.”

You can visit their website by clicking on the logo to the left, and there is a good story about them on California Catholic Daily.
